What is happening in “Al-Jeneina”, the capital of “Dar Masalit”, is a shameful matter. The citizen was left defenseless in the face of a brutal group that does not value the Sultanate’s inheritance and does not celebrate its historical symbols. The whole world saw the criminals storming the house of Sultan Abd al-Rahman Bahr al-Din, which represents a symbol of national sovereignty before it was a symbol of tribal leadership. How could he not, when he is the grandson of Sultan Taj al-Din, the valiant hero who redeemed the country himself and stopped the expansion of the French towards Sudan from the western borders.
Dar Masalit is inhabited by several peoples, including the Masalit, the Sultanate of the Moon, the Aringa, the Fur, the Tama, the Zaghawa, and the Bargid. And the Arabs with their different stomachs, such as the sons of Zaid, the sons of Rashid, the Rizeigat, the Houtiyyah, and so on. These tribes have historical roots and social bonds that have linked them for centuries. The Salvation Army spoiled this emotional coexistence and human intimacy by trying to co-opt some components – especially the Arabs – and seek strength from them to weaken the Masalit, the original owners of the Sultanate.
In its endeavor to exterminate the blues, the “rescue gang” (a reference to the regime of former President Omar al-Bashir) did not object to seeking help from components from outside the Sultanate. These groups that came recently do not have a “great” and are not deterred by any scruples of religion or morals. They stormed the Sultan’s house last week, stole possessions and money, took women and children as captives, and when Mrs. Harem, the wife of Sultan Abd al-Rahman Bahr al-Din and the daughter of the headmaster Mahmoud Musa Madibo (Abu Khair), said to them, “I am the head of Madibo,” they said to her, “We don’t know.” Madibo and nothing else.
We must pay attention here that the “rescue gang” not only refuted the material foundations of national construction, but also sought to kill the morale of the Sudanese self. All that the Saraik (thieves) can do these days is for one of them to step on one of the social mines that the “rescue gang” planted through its security services in the past three decades, so that it becomes impossible to chase the aggressors from both sides (Zarqa or Arabs) into a tribal problem. In light of the complete absence of the state or its siding with one of the parties, as the police did in El Geneina, for example, which distributed 6 thousand weapons to the educationally deficient children from the camps (they are called “Nice”).
What is happening in Khartoum in terms of polarization between the Rapid Support Forces and the army will have serious repercussions on the margins, and therefore it is necessary to try to extinguish the fire of sedition in the center first, and not to divert the effort by heading towards the margins.
Salvation is the one that chose Darfur as a backyard to fight its ideological differences, which later turned into an ethnic confrontation that mobilized all tribal components. The rescue plan included providing weapons to the two groups, Zarqa and Arab, in order to weaken them, and to provide a racist formula for the continuation of power in the center in the hands of a handful of influential people. However, we do not accuse the Nile elites of committing genocide, but we accuse specific individuals and organizations, specifically the “Gang of Seven”, most of whose members are fugitives from justice.
The Rizeigat tribe – this ancient tribe – represented by its historical leadership, Nazir Said Madibo in particular, resisted the involvement of the entity in the systematic war of extermination that included central and western Darfur (and before it the war in the South), which forced the rescue criminals to seek the help of unruly groups summoned from across the belt All Sudanese, and another brought about by the conditions of famine and distress at the beginning of the eighties.
This crime is borne by the rescue gang and some people who have been co-opted by the security apparatus. The Salvation Army is the one who armed them and provided them with ammunition. It is the one that provided them with immunity. It is the one that lured them into burning, looting and rape.
The Salvation Government is the one that chose Darfur as a backyard to fight its ideological differences, which later turned into an ethnic confrontation that mobilized all tribal components.
The elites must stop describing the wars in Darfur as tribal problems. This is a political problem with regional and international dimensions. It is true that there are effects of the Chadian-Libyan war, but the Chadian tribes themselves, whether Arab or blue, have their origins and customs that prevent them from committing such atrocities. Most of the migrations of the Arabs (the Arabs of Darfur in particular) were from Chad after they conquered the coast and entered the south. They did not like the climate, so they headed north and established sultanates that were part of the cultural and social conscience of Darfur. They also fought battles for several centuries that crystallized the Sudanese national character.
The Arabs (Eyal Attia and Haimad) and the Zarqa (Masalit and Fur) fought side by side in Druti, Derjeel and Manawshi. Today, we need to revive this historic alliance to liberate the country from the new settlers, because it will not be long before they tyrannize us and seek to evict us from our country. We have seen signs of this with our own eyes in the recent stormy incidents that took place in El Geneina, Nyala and Khartoum. Which I have been warning about in the past two decades, and insisting that neglecting it will cause a catastrophe for Sudan as a whole.
Whoever misses all this history will remain a stranger to this conscience, but will always be in a state of panic that makes him hasten to loot the goods and steal the country’s resources because he realizes that its people will one day wake up from their negligence and expel the stranger from their land that was unjustly usurped. The Sudanese must resist, with all their might, the influence of these intrusive groups that will not hesitate to commit the same crime in the various suburbs of Sudan. The most dangerous thing is that it will nurture Arabism and seek to establish alliances on ethnic grounds, thus inevitably developing populist Safavid strife throughout the country.
In conclusion, everyone should know that the Rizeigat entity is a hijacked and infiltrated entity, and we resisted this kidnapping and that infiltration by all means, except that we were surprised by a difficult obstacle in the imagination of the popular consciousness written in its footnotes, “The rabbit of rule leads the elephant”! It has become clear that this unhappy rabbit will lead us towards the abyss, and it was necessary to escape from it or eliminate it so that we do not all fall into that abyss. All Sudanese must unite their efforts to get out of this existential impasse, and if we fail or suffice with blaming each other, we will be surrounded by regret and besieged by heartbreak, and there will be no way out.
